ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Drake London celebrated good health and a new contract on the first day of the Atlanta Falcons’ rookie minicamp.

London, the wide receiver who was the Falcons’ first-round pick in last month’s NFL draft from Southern California, missed the end of the 2021 season with a fractured right ankle.

He said he was thrilled to have no restrictions for the first session of the two-day minicamp. London says his ankle “felt great.”

London signed a four-year deal on Thursday worth $21.5 million. The Falcons have a fifth-year option. London could be the team’s top big-play threat at wide receiver.
